Most pregnant women feel the first movements of their baby, known as "quickening," between 18 and 25 weeks of pregnancy. However, the exact timing can vary from woman to woman and even from one pregnancy to another. Some may feel these movements as early as 16 weeks, while others might not feel them until closer to 25 weeks.
During the first pregnancy, movements might be harder to distinguish because they can be subtle and easily mistaken for other sensations. In subsequent pregnancies, women tend to recognize the sensations earlier since they know what to expect.
If you're concerned about not feeling movements at a certain point, it's a good idea to discuss this with your healthcare provider. They can provide guidance based on your specific circumstances.
